6:01 am
it is just after two pm here in moscow this is artsy with me rule research a welcome to the program the violence has flared up again in northern cause of earth after nato troops brutally dispersed a crowd of serbian protesters at a makeshift roadblock witnesses claim the soldiers fired live ammunition at peaceful demonstrators and have now established a forceful presence in the area here to shift key is in that hot spot and sent us this report on friday the case for troops removed one of the barricades which. also was set up in order to block the police and the k. four troops from gaining access to the area and we understand that more than one hundred k. four troops came out with their pointed their guns at the blockading this particular area and ordered them that they should leave the serbs obeyed and retreated peacefully with no violence and set up another a manmade checkpoint to large trucks on
6:02 am
a bridge thus blocking the road the access for troops into the northern part of course there was still more than ten people remain in local hospitals in me that i would say in the town of. after being injured in tuesday's clashes with the k. four troops we managed to pay them a visit and ask them what exactly happened on tuesday. we were standing by the barricade when the soldiers started shouting and shooting at us i didn't know what they were shooting with so i got scared and started running away and i was hit on the shoulder and it turned out to be a perforating wound of my lung. the most interesting fact here is that the k. four troops and nato have been trying to convince everybody that they only used rubber bullets and tear gas grenades against the angry mob to pacify them but doctors in local hospitals told us that they those people who were injured in those clashes were delivered to hospitals carrying gunshot wounds to his room. seven
6:03 am
men in heavy condition gunshot wounds fractures and bruises there were not wounds from rubber bullets not a single of them had a rubber room all those wounds were caused by regular bullets which we extracted from their bodies now the serbs may have lost one of their checkpoints but they have lots more around the area we've counted more than ten different checkpoints the determination of the serb people is very strong now to show that they do not want to be part of the course of a republic. although they are telling us to leave but we have no way to leave this is because constable is our land our home and our life it seems that we are on their own now and we will stand our ground. there has been very harsh international response on the actions of this week here in kosovo with the united states using the course of a service of provoking violence and the russian foreign ministry expressing deepest
6:04 am
concerns over the situation here saying that this may seem as a small as a minor border crossing dispute but in reality this could destabilize the situation in the whole region. the reporting right now tempers arise yet again and cause of the presence of nato troops there maybe becoming a stimuli for yet more violence rather than a barrier against it that's according to alexander a political analyst in belgrade. they've totally and openly stepped out of the un mandate and they're really really now just like during one nine hundred ninety nine during the bombing when there was the air force for the albanian separatists are now acting as their infantry so this is what we have seen this is a clear breach of the u.n. charter and the resolution twelve forty four all they're doing right now is that they're actually. destabilizing the situation there actually bringing conflict.
6:05 am
everything was reasonably peaceful until they gave the green light for albanian special police forces to forcibly take the administrative border back in july and ever since then they've been giving them full support so they're encouraging actually the government to preach to. headed by a caution toci wanted for various charges from organ trafficking to drug trafficking and that they're encouraging him to more violence that they're not a piece at all there are two of war and destabilization and i will be bringing you more updates from cause of eye as they happen but if there's anything that you missed or you want to see the latest videos from there and of course around the world just head up but you tube channel you tube dot com slash. from the latest pictures to the maestro wide ranging opinion it's all there on our channel and we've got all the latest news features interviews and analysis you can

6:14 am
the inevitable consequence of the think things that i got rolling back in february the year that a kind of half hearted intervention was always going to end up with a kind of last stand by gadhafi forces in fact is this is the kind of loss that we expected in tripoli a few weeks ago that never happened in clearly there's a lost time now and the thing about the interface to the role of the international community no could be making things worse not simply by bombarding the city but by actually having made such a fuss about civilians not being injured or even though they clearly have been but by saying that if given the khadafi forces a real incentive to keep keep the civilians in the city. probably it gets there well i'm sure many of them would like to get out of there know. their facts as they become a kind of shield by by which the that they can they can stay there for a loan for a bit longer. the u.s. backed military operation in libya still hasn't brought peace to the region despite

6:17 am
at what they have to say in the future these are guilty men and they are discredited men what is very worrying is that as my as my father used to say to me when i was a young man he said if you make a financial guarantee the nature of five financial guarantees is that they get caught and there is a limit to how much even a country like germany can produce because a country like france is actually much much less and there will be a long term question marks over the credit credit worthiness of france and germany if the multiple trillions of euro's which are required are actually paid up and called on. and with the groups up in arms about a government sponsored predicament the u.s. is also witnessing a growing protest movement over its own right in the nation's financial hub after a modest start about two weeks ago the demonstration named occupy wall street has rapidly grown with up to two thousand people reported in attendance today they say they're protesting against the tremendous influence and misdeeds of corporations and billionaires the otherwise peaceful demonstrations have been marred by

ninety's farmers were able to make around sixty dollars per acre of land every year today just about forty dollars for almost four acres of land the government has pledged billions of dollars in relief packages to farmers and promised to increase the minimum rate on certain exports but many believe the farmers are being ignored . the government is neglecting agriculture basic information like wind power will be there when is not available for the for the government is not providing sufficient loans which is for seafoam is to knock on the doors of money lenders. those who've tried to beat the drought themselves took out huge loans to dick wells but for many it's in vain. we are losing by making these wells but we are surviving because we are determined not to can. suicide we are leading a very sad life just sinking water levels mean these walls are useless but have

6:24 am
young english speaking muslims to join the jihad against the united states and you know that's that was despicable some could say it was hate speech or inciting violence but we have a way of dealing with people that engage in those kinds of activities particularly when they're u.s. citizens you don't just want to sass and ate them there would have been a way to deal with our moral locky that was not assassinating a u.s. citizen without due process and i would love to see someone show evidence that he was posing a direct threat imminent threat to the united states which would have been required under the authorization for the use of military force to hit him in yemen it has been ten years now since american troops that innovation into afghanistan but it's not these lower half and it's found out u.s. citizens i still don't believe that this war story is set for a happy ending. it's been ten years since the u.s. bombed afghanistan as a prelude to an ongoing war
6:25 am
a decade later has it been worth it this week let's talk about that for wars as no benefit so what are they still doing there for ten years i don't know what the heck they do and i don't know it's probably another vietnam. war where the problem is not a we're not. going to win it's just a case of more and more americans and others dying it seems clear cut see that it's not worth it i don't see a goal and i really see anything changing even if we stay there another hundred years it was worth it to hunt down al qaeda but i think we did there at the start with our special forces and for the past nine years i don't think we've accomplished much at all a very controversial question and there's pros and cons to the situation what are the pros the pros is i think that we have to make a statement that we aren't able to. say things sitting down that we have a voice and whether it's there's more peaceful ways to present that probably how
6:26 am
does that go on for ten years that you take a stand for ten years it's a hornet's nest there's no winner over there we have great states we're in there with them but what do we have to do. well eventually we got to bring peace and i mean that's such a nebulous thing right like why we really bringing peace to afghanistan well only time will tell you know i don't really know enough about it to say whether it was worth it don't you think that's crazy that your country's been at war for ten years and you don't know anything about it that is a from yeah. yeah do you think most americans feel that way you know i'm sure a lot of americans there are your pro and anti i look at this well i mean for for a war there for that long i mean it better be for something and we better be good. something out of it do you think that's going to happen now it seems like most people don't feel like the u.s. war in afghanistan has been worth it unfortunately no one in power seems to be
